3.         Fetal and neonatal imaging of the developing brain - Half Day Program

Aims:  
To review current standards in fetal and neonatal CNS imaging, discuss findings and implications of common CNS anomalies and look at the application of MR imaging in this field.

Objective:       
An integrated program of fetal and neonatal topics to promote the extrapolation of neonatal concepts into the fetal period.

Suitable for:
